HILL START ASSIST

Hill start assist briefly holds the vehicle stationary after the brake pedal is released, when pulling away uphill. The system allows the driver time to release the brake pedal and press the accelerator pedal. When the accelerator pedal is pressed, the system smoothly releases the brake pressure, allowing the vehicle to pull away without rolling backward.

NOTES

Hill start assist operates if the auto brake hold function has been disabled. See IMPORTANT INFORMATION.

Hill start assist is not available if there is a Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) fault. See DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL (DSC) (AMBER).
